GOP Congressman: Biden Can End The War In Ukraine By Having Trump Call Putin

If perhaps you had heard all of the ridiculous shit that can possibly emanate from the mouth of a Republican, consider what Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX) had to say Thursday about how the Biden administration can end the war in Ukraine.

According to the congressman, the war would immediately end of President Joe Biden asked disgraced former president Donald Trump call Russian President Vladimir Putin, telling Fox News anchor John Roberts:

“Joe Biden, you need to call Donald Trump. Donald Trump will call Vladimir Putin and end this war. We must stop this war, and Donald Trump can do it.”

The remarks from Nehls come just a day after Biden announced would be sending Abrams tanks to Ukraine to help them repel Russian troops.

When it comes to the tanks, Nehls had this to say:

“The American people have to understand that is a very powerful piece of equipment, but it requires an enormous amount of logistical support. You have to have a logistical package. It has a jet engine. When you have to remove that engine, you need a big crane. It’s called, an M-88. It’s a wrecker for a tank. And you need to have smart people working on that. You need to have the maintenance personnel. You need to have the individuals know how.”

Here’s what doesn’t make sense about what the congressman said: For years now, Donald Trump has claimed he has no ties to Russia and denied that he is friends with Putin. But now Congressman Nehls is certain that one phone call from Trump to Putin would put an end to the fighting.

If Trump can end the war so damn easily, why doesn’t he just pick up the phone and do so? No one is stopping him.

We won’t hold our breath waiting for Donald Trump to do anything good for the United States or our allies. He never has.

WATCH Maria Bartiromo Absurdly Suggest Biden’s Handling Of Classified Docs Might Be ‘Treason’

Fox News host Maria Bartiromo suggested Sunday that President Joe Biden’s handling of classified documents might constitute treason even though she has never once mentioned such a thing in connection with the thousands of documents disgraced former president Donald Trump took with him to Mar-a-Lago when he left office.

Speaking with Rep. James Comer (R-KY), Bartiromo asked what the congressman thought of the Biden situation. He replied:

“The White House isn’t being truthful with the American people. We need to know now who had access to those documents because our national security could be at risk.”

Bartiromo then inquired:

“Is this treason?”

Comer refused to go that far, noting:

“It’s — it’s very concerning. We’re not going to let up. I think that we’ve got plenty of information to move forward.”

In August of last year, Bartiromo gladly shared a video of Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) saying that the FBI was engaging in a “double standard” by daring to serve a search warrant at Trump’s Palm Beach golf resort.

If Bartiromo wants to know what is and isn’t treason, here’s a helpful primer she can reference anytime she has questions:

  • Telling your supporters to attack the Capitol is inciting an insurrection.
  • Allowing the Russian foreign minister and ambassador to know the details of highly classified information is treason.
  • Illegally removing classified documents from the White House and then refusing to return them when instructed to do so is a violation of the Espionage Act.

Oh, and one other thing for Ms. Bartiromo: Those who defend actual traitors are in many ways just as guilty as the traitor himself.

Maybe it’s time to open an investigation of Maria and see where her true loyalties lie.

Secret Service On The Verge Of Betraying Biden To House GOP Investigators: Report

The U.S. Secret Service is supposed to protect the president and members of his family, but it now appears the agency is about to sell President Joe Biden down the proverbial river by turning over information to Republican investigators in the House of Representatives about who has visited Biden at his home in Delaware since he took office.

Fox News reports that the Secret Service is making it clear they will indeed turn over any information to House investigators who want to hold hearings on classified documents found at the president’s home.

The U.S. Secret Service is prepared to offer names of individuals who visited President Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware, home if requested by Congress, Fox News has learned.

The White House continues to insist that there exists no formal visitor log for the personal residence where two troves of classified documents were found. 

While the White House has not kept a formal list, the Secret Service does collect information on guests with regular access to the home. 

This comes shortly after U.S. Secret Service chief of communications Anthony Guglielmi told reporters:

“The Secret Service does not maintain visitor logs at the private residences of protectees. While the Secret Service does generate law enforcement and criminal justice information records for various individuals who may come into contact with Secret Service protected sites, we are not able to comment further as this speaks to the means and methods of our protective operations.”

But a source has informed Fox that the Secret Service is ready to provide available background information on guests who have visited Biden’s home.

In late December, there were reports that Biden didn’t feel safe to speak freely around members of his Secret Service detail, with the Independent noting:

President Joe Biden was so disturbed by the Secret Service’s handling of text messages sought by the House January 6 select committee that he stopped speaking candidly in the presence of special agents assigned to his protection detail, a new book on the Biden White House has revealed.

In The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House, author Chris Whipple writes that Mr Biden’s discomfort with the post-Trump era agency began early on in his presidency, when it became clear that “some of” the agents charged with protecting him from assassination were strong supporters of the man he defeated in the 2020 election, former president Donald Trump.

Indeed, the Secret Service was only too happy to “accidentally” delete thousands of text messages sent by agents on the day of the Capitol insurrection, but now they sound eager to provide House Republicans with whatever information they want.

Maybe it’s time for President Biden to demand that the Secret Service be completely overhauled and depoliticized. If it isn’t, no Democratic president will ever feel safe.

Jake Tapper Puts GOPer On Full Blast For His Hypocrisy Regarding Trump And Biden Documents

CNN’s Jake Tapper put the new Republican Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. James Comer (KY) on full blast for his blatant hypocrisy regarding the way his committee will handle the 20 classified documents found in President Joe Biden’s home when Comer previously defended former president Donald Trump for having hundreds of top secret documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

Comer began ranting about the documents found at Biden’s former office and home. That led to Tapper remarking:

“Let’s go there. You’re talking about the Trump documents. Former President Trump is under an investigation for his own classified documents. There are about 20 in the case of Biden. For Trump, there are more than 300 classified documents at Mar-a-Lago — a big difference here just on the facts.

“Trump did not fully comply with his subpoena, his lawyers falsely told investigators they turned everything in. Take a listen to what you told CNN about this situation last November.”

In the video clip, Comer said of Trump, “I don’t know much about that. That’s not something that we’ve requested information just to see what was going on because I don’t know what documents were at Mar-a-Lago. So that’s something we’re just waiting to see what comes out of there.”

Tapper asked Comer:

“What are you saying to viewers who don’t understand why President Biden’s documents seem like a big priority for you, but President Trump, who took hundreds more documents did not comply with the subpoena, did not reach out to the National Archives or the Justice Department to say, ‘hey, we found these document,’ it’s not only a priority. Do you only care about documents being mishandled when Democrats do the mishandling?”

The congressman responded:

“Absolutely not. Look, we still don’t know what type of documents President Trump had. That’s one of the questions we’ve asked the National Archives. Just because Joe Biden’s lawyers say they turned over five documents, doesn’t mean they turned over five documents. They could have turned over 500 documents. I’m sorry but I don’t have a lot of confidence in President Biden’s personal lawyers.”

Capitol Insurrection Donald Trump Elections January 6 Joe Biden

Biden Slams Trump And The GOP At Jan. 6 Ceremony: ‘Predators And Peddlers Of Lies That Fueled Insurrection’

At a White House ceremony this afternoon, President Joe Biden presented the Presidential Citizens Medal to 14 Americans who showed courage, selflessness, and dedication in the days after the 2020 election and also during the January 6, 2021 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

CNBC reports that the recipients were “honored for their actions before, during and after the riot, when a violent mob of former President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol, fighting with officers, destroying and stealing property and threatening lawmakers.”

Though he never once said the name of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump or his apologists, it could not have been clearer who Biden was talking about when he said this as he referred to Georgia election workers Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss:

“Ruby, who for years has taken time away from her own business to work an election season to honor voting rights in her beloved city, and her daughter Shaye, who learned from her grandmom, how older generations of her family fought so hard to get the right to vote, so Shaye decided to become a full-time election worker to help the elderly, disabled, students, exercise their fundamental right to vote.

“Both of them were just doing their jobs until they were targeted and threatened by the same predators and peddlers of lies which fueled the insurrection. They were literally forced from their homes, facing despicable racist taunts, despite it all, Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss found the courage to testify in front of the entire world to set the record straight about the lies.”

Despite the efforts of those who wanted to subvert American democracy, Biden noted that “we the people did not flinch, we the people endured, we the people prevailed,” which is almost certain to draw a hateful posting by the disgraced ex-president on his failing Truth Social site.

Even though Trump says he’s running for the White House again in 2024, polls show the vast majority of American voters don’t want to see a second Trump administration.

Here’s the full ceremony:
